- Brett Bebber studies the histories of postwar and postimperial migration, racism, and integration in Britain, and the history of the British empire. In particular, he is interested in the ways in which the decline of the Empire and the surge in migration to postwar Britain reshaped national identity and social relationships in the metropole. He has written on the intersections of race, gender, and violence in postwar Britain, and studied the cultural implications of social control, working-class violence and political racisms in modern British culture.

- He has published works analyzing the cultural struggles that emerge in sport and leisure in Britain, and has analyzed how forms of leisure mediated and catalyzed broader social conflicts. His newest research threads include a study of migrant integration and civil rights in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s, and an examination of working-class conservatism and responses to black and Asian migrants to Britain in popular culture.
